WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this multi-media concept piece, Cristina Cortes envisions a future of cross-cultural empowerment, mixing passages between myths, legends and historical events past, present and future. Composite animated illustrations mix with still images and video, movement on stage generates after effects images, text and sounds on screens. Similarly, still images or video trigger the appearance of live elements and characters on stage. A totem is deconstructed and its parts - masks, symbols and costume - are worn and manipulated by the dancers. The resulting assemblage of movement intertwining with images is referred to as "a journey of recovery."
